A car accident can happen so quickly that a driver often has little opportunity to react.

The crash happened in January. Witnesses claim that the vehicle was traveling well over posted speed limits. Police claim that their investigation revealed that the driver lost control of the vehicle.

It is often difficult to predict how people will react during a moment of conflict, especially if they feel that their life may be endangered.

The incident happened on a night in late September. According to reports, the 39-year-old suspect became involved in a dispute with a 34-year-old male customer.

Missouri man charged with possession of drugs after chase

Police in Missouri and other areas of the country claim to be waging a war against drugs. While their desire to remove drugs from the streets may be admirable, violating a suspect's rights in the process of doing so is not.

The events that led to the 29-year-old man's arrest began one night in early October. A police officer who was patrolling claimed to have noticed a vehicle that he described as "suspicious." It is unclear what led the officer to that conclusion.

What is an Expungement? New law helps many in Missouri

In January 2018, a new law regarding expungements goes into effect. That’s good news for many who live and work in Missouri. Many people, however, are unfamiliar with what an expungement actually is. Expungement is a process where criminal records are sealed. Anyone arrested or charged with a crime has a criminal record.

Each state has its own law on what crimes can be expunged and when. Currently, in the state of Missouri, felonies can be expunged after 20 years and misdemeanors can be expunged after 10. The new law, however, is changing that.

The fight allegedly happened one night in September and involved a wedding party. Reports indicate that a group inside a bar turned aggressive just before they were kicked out by security. The conflict reportedly continued on the street.

Reports indicate that a 28-year-old man was driving on a Missouri roadway during the early morning hours of a day in September. Police say that the man failed to stop at a traffic light. As a result, they believe that he struck the side of a vehicle traveling through the intersection.
